The Municipality of Seixal welcomes the first edition of the Seixal Ladies Open, hoping that this will be the first of many editions. It will undoubtedly be a success, considering the prestige of the athletes in competition, as well as the expectation created by this tournament amid the enthusiasts of the sport.
The realization of the Seixal Ladies Open reinforces the role of the “Clube Recreativo e Desportivo Brasileiro-Rouxinol” within the national and international tennispanorama.
With a tennis school that includes more than 100 athletes and the participation in the various echelons of collective or individual sports events at local, regional and national level, the club is also recognized for organizing various tournaments integrated in the national calendar of the PortugueseFederationofTennis.
The organization of this women’s international tournament will bring tennis players from all over the world to Seixal, who will be joining the great names of the national tennis present at this grand sporting event.
The Seixal City Council has been a partner of the popular associative movement, investing in projects and equipment for the population, as happened with this collectivity with the installation of new floors on the tennis courts and the enlargement of the facilities, and supporting initiatives for everyone, in terms of training, regular practice and competition.
The Seixal Ladies Open is the result of the energy and determination of the “Clube Recreativo e Desportivo Brasileiro-Rouxinol” and the result of the work they perform every day, always with the support of the local autarchy, which recognises its commitment and important role in the sports development within the municipality, but also as a reference in the national and international tennis.
I would like to welcome all those who will have the opportunity to visit the municipality of Seixal and hope you’ll enjoy all the good things we have to offer.
It is with a mix of satisfaction and confidence that the Portuguese Federation of Tennis associates with the realization of the Seixal Ladies Open, a commendable initiative of the ‘Clube Recreativo e Desportivo Brasileiro Rouxinol’.
This sports association, founded in 1980, has been one of the greatest dynamization centres of tennis and other sports in the south bank of the Tagus river over the last years, promoting both coaching and the organization of prize-money tournaments, that achieved to reunite the national elites.
At a time when the Portuguese Federation of Tennis is strongly committed in turning a page in the female tennis, supporting with great enthusiasm the international tournaments from north to south of the country, the arrival of the Seixal Ladies Open brings us a message of hope meeting a tradition that the club leaders have always honoured.
This first edition of the Seixal Ladies Open will open the way so many young people will be able to watch such players who, within a few years, will step onto the big international stages.
And it is also a message of confidence in a policy of expansion that the Portuguese Federation of Tennis has been promoting in connection with the regional associations and their clubs.
I send a word of gratitude to the ‘Clube Recreativo e Desportivo Brasileiro Rouxinol’, the Tennis Association of Setubal and the Seixal City Council.
